Two games you should buy and play

If you love miniatures, wargaming, and the ancient period, you need to play Tin Soldiers: Alexander and Tin Soldiers: Caesar. These are turn-based games which allow you to re-fight the campaigns of these great generals with beautifully rendered images of painted miniatures as the gaming pieces. When casualties happen, a little hand even appears to remove figures from the units! The games are very well done, challenging, and a lot of fun. I'm not sure if Koios Works, the original designers, are still in business, but the games are available over at Matrix Games and I highly recommend you get one or both of these great games. They really hit the spot when you just can't get a friend over to play a game on the table! It's a shame they weren't greater commercial successes when they were orignally released, because I would love to see more of them.
